The fool on the hill in Ross-on-Wye

I have a very definite and compelling reason for this post.
In fact, I’m sticking it on top (for part of the day ) because I want all to see how mindlessly stupid and self delusional as well as self aggrandizing those idiot bed wetting jerks on the left are.  So help me these fools are a waste of oxygen I’d happily deny them.
And it all started with a letter to an editor.
See guys, when you age and haven’t much of anything really important to do, you just naturally find things that annoy.  In this case however, it was the wife who found it first and brought it to my attention. 

Okay look here.  This won’t mean much to Americans, it’s an English thing and there are many who come here from Europe to attend, and I would imagine there could be Americans in that number as well. None of which matters anyway for my purpose here with this subject.

First, I have no problem with The Proms. I am not a fan in any big way of the music but at least I know what it is and am quite aware of it.  And besides that, you can not be married to a Brit and not be aware.
I am posting this small bit of info and history of The Proms, so you will be able to see for yourself how incredibly stupid liberals of the ilk that wrote that letter that set me off.  I want to see if any of you will see any raaaaaaaaacism in connection with this event.


The Proms

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about the British concerts.

The Proms, more formally known as The BBC Proms, or The Henry Wood Promenade Concerts presented by the BBC, is an eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and other events held annually, predominantly in the Royal Albert Hall in London. Founded in 1895, each season currently consists of more than 70 concerts in the Albert Hall, a series of chamber concerts at Cadogan Hall, additional Proms in the Park events across the United Kingdom on the last night, and associated educational and children’s events. In 2009 the total number of concerts reached 100 for the first time. In the context of classical music festivals, Jiří Bělohlávek has described the Proms as “the world’s largest and most democratic musical festival”.[1]
Prom is short for promenade concert, a term which originally referred to outdoor concerts in London’s pleasure gardens, where the audience was free to stroll around while the orchestra was playing. In fact this tradition has been revived in parks and stately homes around the UK at promenade concerts such as the Battle Proms. In the context of the BBC Proms Promming now refers to the use of the standing areas inside the hall (the arena and gallery) for which ticket prices are much lower than for the reserved seating. Single-concert Promming tickets can be bought, with few exceptions, only on the day of the concert, which can give rise to long queues for well-known artists or works. Proms concert-goers, particularly those who stand, are sometimes described as “Promenaders”, but are most commonly referred to as “Prommers”. Prommers can buy full- or half-season tickets instead for guaranteed entry (until 20 minutes before the concert is due to start), although not the assurance of a particular standing position. A number of Prommers are particularly keen in their attendance. In 1997, one programme in the BBC documentary series Modern Times covered this dedicated following of enthusiasts.

Origins and Henry Wood

Promenade concerts had existed in London’s pleasure gardens since the mid 18th century, but on 10 August 1895 impresario Robert Newman arranged the first series of indoor promenade concerts, in the Queen’s Hall in Langham Place. Newman’s idea was to encourage an audience for concert hall music who, though not normally attending classical concerts, would be attracted by the low ticket prices and more informal atmosphere. In addition to promenading; eating, drinking and smoking were all allowed. He stated his goal as follows:
I am going to run nightly concerts and train the public by easy stages. Popular at first, gradually raising the standard until I have created a public for classical and modern music.

If interested, you just need to Google Proms for loads more info.
For my purpose even what I copied above might be too much. But anyway, you get the idea.  So here’s an idiot letter and it clearly shows what’s amiss in our world. Because this fellow isn’t the only damned fool on the hill.  He has lots of company, and they are the sorts that cause most of the problems.
It appeared under the heading of:

NO BLACK FACES
at the Proms

Like so many others I enjoyed
watching the last night of the Proms.
But my enjoyment was marred as I began to realize
that among all those thousands, I was unable to
detect one black face, either at the Albert Hall
or in any of the outdoor audiences.  I wonder what
message this sends us about the real state of
integration in British society?
Ray Smith
Ross-on-Wye

I think the paper should have passed on this asinine letter.  It reads as though somehow, someway Mr Smith’s favorite racial group had been excluded intentionally.  Made not welcome perhaps. Or refused tickets. Or perhaps just plain banned.  Oh that’s all likely.  Think so?  Neither do I.
Oh the poor man. His enjoyment was “marred.”
He was hurt on behalf of people who had shown no interest in the event.  But he gets to keep his liberal creds. 

Ross-on-Wye is a pretty village of some 10,000 people.  Be interesting to know how many black faces reside there.  I looked but couldn’t find any.  Doesn’t there aren’t any, just that I could not locate any.

Of the three towns Ross-on-Wye is twinned with, (what a stupid idea that is) one is Namutumba, Uganda.  No doubt Mr. Ross’s doing.

Bottom line ,,,, the guy’s a damn fool and a trouble seeking phoney.

Please die soon Ray.  Today would be good.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
